Tax deduction reform for Child Care

I just read the message regarding the need for finding and funding quality, affordable, and safe childcare. My thoughts are that the legislature needs to review the tax deduction allowance for childcare.

I believe right now it maxes out at $5,000.00 depending on income. I am grateful that I have a quality, safe childcare center. My husband and I both work. We have 3 children under the age of 10. We hit our $5,000.00 max back in May. I think that the tax law needs to be reviewed since so many parents are going back into the work force.

Our representatives need to take a look at what quality daycare really costs in this country and think about what they can do to help the parents of our next generation get the best start that they can.
